My INR For January 2014

As January is now finished, I can show a graph of my daily INR tests for January 2014.

My INR For January 2014

My INR For January 2014

The average INR for the month was 2.6 with a standard deviation of 0.2.  This is well within the range of 2 to 3 and just above the target of 2.5.

I’m using a simple algorithm of 4 mg. normally, with 3 mg. if the INR is above or equal to 2.8 and 5 mg, if it is below or equal to 2.2.

It would be interesting to see if the results with the switch limits set to 2.1 and 2.9, or if a little bit of integral control were to be introduced. As with all control systems, getting everything stable always needs a bit of fine tuning.

An Inadvertent Inuendo

Caitlin Moran in The Times on Friday does her Celebrity Watch, which  I  generally read, as it lets me find out who the inconsequential idiots, like Justin Bieber, that constantly pollute news bulletins, actually are.

Today, she marks David Cameron down, because of an interview about his musical taste. She reveals that despite his profile, he still manages to sneak into gigs, like that of Swedish act; First Aid Kit at the O2 Shepherds Bush.

Caitlin has now got the phrase. “Cameron’s back entrance to the Bush” stuck in her mind.
